Kristin Kaelber, MD, PhD, FAAP, FACP
Kristin Kaelber, MD, PhD, FAAP, FACP, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, graduated from Amherst College magna cum laude with a degree in biology. Dr. Kaelber went on to obtain both her medical degree as well as her PhD in developmental neurosciences from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Next, she completed a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Metrohealth System and is board-certified in both specialties. She is also certified in lifestyle medicine from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
Dr. Kaelber’s career has ranged from working with patients with disabilities, working in primary care, to serving as an urgent care provider in an emergency room. The course of her career didn’t fully transform until one of her family members became ill with heart disease. Determined to find ways to address his illness outside of conventional medicine, she began to investigate integrative medicine. Through the use of integrative medicine techniques, she was able to help him eliminate most of his medications and stabilize his condition through a natural approach.
Dr. Kaelber believes that people can cure (or at least drastically improve) the majority of their chronic medical problems using a combination of lifestyle medicine techniques including nutrition, stress management, movement and healthy sleep habits.
In addition to her work at UH Connor Whole Health, Dr. Kaelber is on the faculty of the American Meditation Institute and incorporates mind body medicine and yoga science into her work with patients.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison
